Has anyone had to have sugery for thier hound dog limping ? Ethel has a limp and my vet recommended surgery to basically cut one of her leg bones in half and extend it so that both bones are the same length. I asked about "Pano" and she said that Ethel does not have pano but a bone defect and she is suffering and will become lame if we don't take some action soon. We took Ethel to another vet to get the surgery done and that vet said that my vet is out of her mind and Ethel does not need surgery. Well, we are going for a third opinion (tie-breaker) tomorrow with a new vet to see what he thinks. In the mean time, Ethel is still limping and I hate to see her in any kind of pain. Has anyone had any experience in this area ?
